Field-programmable gate arrays (FGPAs) are finding their way into many different applications as 5G technology, and other LPWAN connectivity solutions roll out. Automotive, IoT operations, and 5G edge applications are implementing FPGA chips due to their fast time-to-market and their ability to be reprogrammed. In many cases, the FPGA is installed in applications where frequent system updates are needed. Often these bitstream updates are made over the air (OTA. An FPGA with a magnetoresistive random-access memory (MRAM) can simplify the software associated with the management process of updating new bitstreams into memory. System designers can take advantage of MRAM’s faster write capabilities which can lead to lower energy usage. New MRAM developments are underway to combine the unique benefits of MRAM and FPGA.
